Q. I am a dentist starting with the Federal Bureau of Prisons at age 43 with an age exemption. I have approximately 10 years of military years to buy back.

Q. When you elect to retire under the MRA + 10 and postpone receipt of annuity, what happens to your unused sick leave? I assume they cut me a check for unused annual leave (please correct me if I’m wrong). I am at my MRA (56) with 20+ years of creditable service.
Q. I left government service in 1981 and withdrew my retirement funds. I then re-entered government in 1991 under CSRS and retired in 2009. I am paying back the withdrawn funds every month out of my annuity. How long will they take out these funds from my retirement? It will be 10 years in January 2019. I have been told by others that it will be 10 years, then the money will be put toward my retirement annuity.
